    Those are officially called "Fart eggs" Someone said you can blow it out and save it forever! HOW CUTE!

    Quote:No. It probably has little to no yolk, and definitely not enough to support an embryo for the 21 days needed to incubate.

    OOOH! A chicken fart! We've had about two of those in the past year or so. One was an inch and a bit over; the other was a whopping 3/4 of an inch! I've seen robin eggs bigger than that last one! I don't think I've got any pictures, though. Congrats!
